The remote host contains an application that is affected by a denial of service issue.


Veritas Storage Foundation, a storage management solution from Symantec is installed on the remote host.

The installed version is reportedly affected by a denial of service vulnerability. By sending specially crafted IP packets to TCP port 4888, an unauthenticated attacker may be able to cause a denial of service condition and crash the scheduler service.

In addition the Administration service may also be affected by a heap overflow vulnerability.


Apply the appropriate patch as discussed in the vendor advisories above.
